This is the tale of Nyakim Gatwech, a South Sudanese fashion icon. Her public persona has been fierce in advocating for skin positivity.

Nyakim, who lives in Minnesota at the moment, is still breaking down barriers associated with traditional beauty standards. She talks about the discussions she had with people about the hue of her skin. This 24-year-old model laughed aloud when an Uber driver advised her to “bleach” her skin in 2016.

Nyakim goes on to advocate for “Black Rights” and promote skin positivity. She has earned the title of “Queen Of The Dark” with her sincere and fearless qualities. Her message to the world is to love oneself regardless of appearance and to not let anyone dictate what constitutes “one” standard of beauty.
